Find Warsaw’s first cider house operating as a sidearm of the highly successful Jabeerwocky tap bar. While the management are still in the process of finalizing their portfolio,  early signs point to an offer that’s heavily slanted towards excellent, upcoming Polish brands such as Kwaśne Jabłko. Watch this space for more. Jabeerwocky...

Padbar

Going Out 17 August 2016 0

How’s this for an odd coupling: retro Nintendo games and new generation beer. Set over two floors, Padbar celebrates the golden years of gaming with a number of consoles offering a smorgasbord of legendary games: Mortal Kombat, Fifa, etc. Competition nights get heated, though the overriding mood remains good...

Of all the seasonal bars that have opened on the Wisła, this might strike you as the flimsiest construction of them all: even on a still day you can feel its wooden framework wobble. The set-up is thus: find a black, narrow bar with a roof deck on top...

Afera Na Szpitalnej
Resplendent with white brick walls and good-humored murals, in terms of style Afera seems more sanitized than Warsaw’s other shot bars. But is it actually more sane? No chance! When the clubs have closed top-up your alcohol levels by necking little shots of horror from one of the most...

Żyrafa

Going Out 16 March 2016 0

Nowy Świat’s ‘pavilion’ bars keep revealing surprises, and the latest is one of the best so far: snuck to the Smolna-side entrance, Żyrafa is a gem, albeit one of almost tiddly size: 15 sq/m in all. Looking less grungy than its neighbors, the intimate air is conducive to accidental...

The Krucza carousel has, in the last few years, churned out then chewed up a number of bars and restaurants that have, eventually, spun from the wheel and orbited out of existence. It’s not just the competition that’s tough here, but the rents. Add a demanding, fickle crowd and...

Beerokracja

Going Out 27 January 2016 0

The design is rudimentary and the staff struggle with basic concepts of courtesy, but Beerokracja make amends through twelve taps that juggle a rotating line-up of Polish and international breweries: that means appearances from big hitters like Prairie, Pizza Port and Brew Fist. If you take beer seriously, that’s...
